TEC's College Football Top 10, Week 10

Last Saturday's highly touted battles of top ranked schools didn't play out as most likely anticipated, as Texas Christian drilled Utah in Salt Lake City and the Crimson Tide were shocked in Baton Rouge by a Louisiana State team that seemingly the entire nation has expected to implode since the start of the season.  And that's why we love college football.

Along with LSU's re-entry, Oklahoma State enters the top 10 for the first time this season after an impressive win over a very solid Baylor squad.  And for those questioning Boise State's #2 ranking, which places the Broncos ahead of both Auburn and Texas Christian, do not overlook the fact that BSU received more first place votes in the latest Associated Press poll than both of the aforementioned 10-win teams combined.  Please believe me, the Broncos are worthy.
Rankings as of November 8, 2010
#1  Oregon (9-0), 670 pts.
#2  Boise State (8-0), 655 pts.
#3  Texas Christian (10-0), 620 pts.
#4  Auburn (10-0), 605 pts.
#5  Wisconsin (8-1), 530 pts.
#6  Stanford (8-1), 505 pts.
#7  Louisiana State (8-1), 410 pts.
#8  Ohio State (8-1), 375 pts.
#9  Nebraska (8-1), 325 pts.
#10  Oklahoma State (8-1), 305 pts.
